  1. The top line of the title should be the episode number e.g bs501
  2. The title should be centred on the TV screen in Title Case (first letters are capitals). [PT Sans Caption] font. colour: @mmWhite. Use as many rows as looks good.
  3. The title sequence stays up for the duration of the intro, followed by a hard cut (no black).
  4. The intro music fades down at the end of the intro.
  5. The outro has the episode id in the same position as the intro.
  6. IMPORTANT If there is a Supporter's logo for the episode then it occupies the top row of the credit sequence (just after cartoon me has turned off the set). The script will tell you if the supporter has a strapline to be placed with the logo. If in doubt have a look at the internet to see how company does it on their website.
  7. Credits should be animated in your own favourite style.
    • Role: [PT Sans Caption] font. Colour @mmLight height around 50px.
    • Name: [PT Sans Caption] font. Colour @mmWhite height around 70px.
  8. Please use the script to create a caption file if you have time (TTML if possible)
  9. Please ensure that any graphics you use are creative commons modification or any other license that permits re-use with modification. If you are not sure then [Contact] me.
